Eli is an Israeli swimming coach living in the United States. A phone call notifies him that his father, who he hasn’t been in touch with, passed away. Eli reluctantly travels to Tel Aviv for the first time in 10 years to deal with the estate. On his short trip he decides to visit his childhood friend, Yotam. Yotam is running a small and beautiful flower shop in Jaffa, together with his fiancée Iris, a talented florist who, like Eli, is not in touch with her family. When Eli comes to visit the two, he will set in motion a serious of events that will affect everyone’s lives. A story set between a flower shop and an ancient monastery, between a swimming pool and the Mediterranean, between life and death - and somewhere in the middle.
